Eleftherio-Kordelio (Greek: Ελευθέριο-Κορδελιό) is a Borough of Thessaloniki. It was founded in 1924 by Greek refugees from the town of Kordelio on the west coast of Asia Minor (now Turkey). Eleftherio-Kordelio covers an area of 3,75 km² with around 21.630 inhabitants as of 2001. It's the stronghold of the nationalist LAOS Party that reached 10.25% of the municipal votes in the 2004 European Elections. The culture of the municipality has been influenced by the Sarakatsani, a tribe of Greek nomads that lived in several rural parts of the southern Balkans, who came to Eleftherio-Kordelio in the 1960s.
